Published on

While either hot aisle or cold aisle containment systems can be installed and are both capable of increasing efficiency and cooling today’s high heat data centers, meaningful differences exist in how they function and are implemented. This paper reviews both approaches and concludes that cold aisle containment is the superior solution.

Focused Cooling Using Cold Aisle Containment

  1. 1. A White Paper from the Experts in Business-Critical ContinuityTMFocused Cooling Using Cold Aisle Containment
  2. 2. Executive SummaryA number of options are available to facilities professionals looking to improve coolingefficiency and reduce resources consumed by their data centers. Beyond implementingbasic measures such as sealing moisture out of the data center and improving air flow,aisle containment to prevent the mixing of hot and cold air stands out as a method thatcan dramatically reduce energy costs, minimize hot spots and improve the carbon footprintof data centers.While either hot aisle or cold aisle containment systems can be installed and are both capableof increasing efficiency and cooling today’s high heat data centers, meaningful differencesexist in how they function and are implemented. This paper reviews both approaches andconcludes that cold aisle containment is the superior solution. Cold aisle containment canbe used with or without conventional raised floor cooling. It is easily retrofitted into existingraised floor data centers and works in tandem with the raised floor as well as with extremedensity cooling systems to produce highly efficient cooling solutions.Click here to view this white paper in its entirety. 1
